Rena-Fi Survive, Thrive and Learn Series

What a time we are living in right now! It’s hard to know which way is up as our ‘normal’ days have radically changed. What’s normal anyways? Well, the normal right now is different and perhaps uncharted in a lot of ways. No one had the answers, but we have some helpful resources and ways to look at things. We can’t do it in one event, so we are going to do it in eight (or more depending on how these resonate with you). Here’s what we will be covering: Community and isolation, alternatives to predatory lenders, surviving the next few months and planning for the future. We will be bringing in guests and anticipate some lively discussions. Won’t you join us?

  • Be Prepared (3/27 at 6PM EST) To some degree we all need to prepare. Living by the seat of our pants will not serve us in the future.

This is no “doomsday” prepping event but just a preparedness for being able to weather upcoming and possible storms more effectively.
